Remodeling Finished

About 6 weeks ago several of our friends from our church came over and helped us tear down a room off our house.  It’s been something I’ve been wanting to do for a couple of years.  A major gas leak got us jump started.  We fixed the gas leak, tore down the structure, and hauled it all away.  That revealed some problems with the house that needed to be fixed. …

You Are An Occasion… So Rise To It!

I watched Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium this last weekend.  It was a pretty decent movie (made better by watching it in Blu-Ray and surround sound).   It may not have the best story line, action sequences, or romance, but it is certainly worth a few bucks to rent the movie.  There was one line in the middle of the movie that was great.  Mr.  Magorium said to Mahoney, “You Are An…

A New Generation – “Work From Home”

Sometime between 6 and 7am a beep or radio music signaled that it was time to get up and head…

Success Magazine is Back

I don’t know if you’ve been around long enough to remember Success magazine.  I used to love to pick it up at Barnes and Noble.  Then it was gone.  After several years, Success Magazine is now back.  I checked the publishing address, and it is in the same building that publishes all of the Success From Home, Your Business at Home, etc. magazines.  Except – Success magazine is 100% generic and…
